Our very first featured artist lived just round the corner from the WeLikeArtists editorial computer. We then spread our selection across the atlantic to the States and now, we are back locally with Jon Burgerman.
Jon lives across the river from us in Nottingham but has a seriously international profile. He scribbles and doodles - everywhere. He has dooded in the Heliumcowboy Artsspace, Hamburg, then in a window in Cologne and, before that, in New York.
The piece illustrated here is located in Bangalore, India. Jon was flown over by AOL to create a mural at their Bangalore office for the employees to help colour in.
Apart from designing 3-D objects as well Jon has gone digital with his iPhone and iPad application Inkstramental (TM) which allows you to make ‘music’ by touching Burgerman doodled characters displayed on your iPhone and iPad screen.
